The Diagram is the crown jewel of visual thinking. As a communication tool, it allows audiences to quickly and directly understand complicated relationships. As a design tool, it allows practitioners to understand the bigger picture as they dive into the details.
Diagrams are a transformative tool for:


organizational leaders,

theater directors,


product developers,

city planners,


innovators in all fields.

In this fun, hands-on workshop, participants will

learn about basic diagramming techniques and then
develop diagrams that express relationships between things
develop diagrams that express changes in experience over time
communicate the bigger picture inherent in everyday situations.

All materials will be provided. 
The workshop is based on the diagrams of Odyssey Works, a performance company that creates weekend-long experiences for one person audiences. Each performance is encoded in a diagram that is used both to elaborate and to communicate the basic ideas in the production. 
"The idea is a beautiful inefficiency: a tiny but infinitely more affected audience,"- Chris Colin, The New York Times
Starting at 6:00pm we will have a little time to get to know one another. The workshop itself will begin at 6:30. 
Workshop will be led by Odyssey Works Artistic Director Abraham Burickson
